about long term problems, we would be thinking about the long term unemployment. obama has talked about this somewhat but that is not where washington's mindset is right now. >> you mentioned manufacturing. zero gain there. in other areas, professional business services, leisure, hospitality, 43,000. that may improve over the summer. health care, 19,000. construction, lost 6,000. government lost 11,000. are those losses, you mentioned government. is the construction number the result of sequester? >> there's been a lougs boom. whether or not that will continue after such a low base. the other thing to look into these number is that professional business services, a lot of these are really, really poorly paid jobs. yes, you have a job if you have 26,000 a year, but that, too, is something we should think about. what is the wage level. not the unemployment rate. the wage level of an employed person. >> when governor perry was running for president, he touted texas a lot, apply home state. what he was remiss in saying is you have people who were employed but were in low waning jobs and man

? >> doing all right. your lead story talking about president obama's et putti house democrats in a tough spot. how is that helping? >> health care's become a problem in general for democrats right now if you think about it in two different areas. one, the budget that the president put forward does go after entitlement spending in a specific way which you talk about a lot on this show. for house democrats, they feel like running off the election that complicates their lives because they like to attack republicans for trying to reduce spending on entitlement programs. that's one box. there's a new poll out this morning by the kaiser foundation that shows that support for the obama health care law has dropped eight points. it's now at about 34%. and you saw in the debate last night where she was distancing herself from the obama health care law. i think there's a lot of democrats worried that the implementation has been very difficult, unpopular, particularly for small business owners and it could be very problematic for them in off-year elections, much like it was in 2010. >> i read a "wal

it works for those guys but not barack obama. that astounds me. but let's talk about the immigration idea what he has been saying on immigration. we know how it plays in congress. how is it playing in texas? >> um, as you know, as a lot of people know, one of rick santorum's problems besides the fact that he had foot-in-mouth disease in the last campaign, was that he was relatively soft from the point of view from the right, his own party on immigration. he was a relatively moderate on immigration. so was george bush. you look at john mccain, who has had a variety of positions over the years but effectively is a nuanced and informed position on immigration. you get these people along the border and many folks along the border, not everybody but many political folks along the border in states like texas understand that the immigration issue is much more difficult and nuanced. there are family connections. there are economic connections. so you have in most cases not in the case of cruz, but in the case of many of these candidates the greater recognition of the value of immigration. withexc
days. >> wow. that's too much. thanks. let's go now to washington, and president obama in his weekly address today talking about those big sequester cuts and how congress quickly moved to bring furloughed air traffic controllers back on the job. the furloughs by the faa had caused airport delays across this country. well, here's the president's take today. >> this week, the sequester hurt travelers who were stuck for hours in airports and on planes and arightly frustrated by it. and maybe because they fly home each weekend the members of congress who insisted on these cuts finally realized that they actually apply to them, too. >> nbc's white house correspondent kristen welker is at the white house for us. with a good saturday morning to you, kristen. i know the white house has been calling this a band-aid since the senate passed it on thursday night. so, will the president sign it once it hits his desk? >> hey, good morning, alex. and welcome to d.c. always great to have you here. you know, despite calling it a band-aid he is expected to sign this legislation in to law. and it stand

. the really important thing to remember here we've been talking about justice and i think if the obama administration is going to allow itself to be led by the polls that's putting politics over justice but putting politics over sound policy. every single relevant national security stakeholder in the united states government agrees that closing guantanamo is in the national security interest of the united states and we're still not doing it. that's a clear example. the clearest example i've ever seen of putting politics over sound policy. >> john, your contention that guantanamo was an effort to evade the constitution. we're not talking about dealing with u.s. citizens, though, which is not to say we should deal with citizens of other nations that violate our ethics, but this is not -- these are people who are not entitled to the protection of the constitution, presumably. >> right. that's true. i think maybe -- >> that's very much an open question. that's an issue my students and i litigate day in and day out in federal court. >> doesn't mean they should be treated unethically by any

beat president obama on the issue of government spending. just don't talk about medicare, and don't talk about social security. but you can talk about government spending. many republicans would then add to that don't talk about national defense, the pentagon budget should also be off limits. the problem with that thinng is you have now exempted the three largest parts of the federal budget from your critique of federal spending. so so these are sort of the divisions and the conflicts and the contradictions that i think any serious proponent of limited government has to contend with. i think there's been a sort of this view that's been propounded that limited government is impossible. anarchists even make this argument, and i would argue -- i would counter to you that limited government is possible but difficult. the fact that there has been limited government in the united states government was a fairly limited government for 150 years even after the progressive era, even after the civil war where there was some government growth, and there were some impediments to government gro

one, this idea of inefficiency. we were talking about that before. under obama. that's a theme we heard time and time. this black president is inefficient government. secondly, the theme that we're starting here time and time again is who is deserving and who is not deserving. the vilification of poor people as lady and undeserving. the welfare queen and very specific things come to mind. that's the story that is just playing into those themes. then you read crazy steve king from iowa saying this is a buyout for black people. they're trying to buy off minorities. that's disturbing. >> there's more immediate historical context that the piece missed, which is in 1983 reagan uses brutal cuts. she is literally thrown into the trash can, which creates an evidence gap. people who are trying to put in writing their claim to discrimination. you are looking at a series of cases where it is not clear. it's not always documented. now did that create some loose standards that aren't transparent and accountable? it looks like that might have been the case. but we need to find out the scale of
